Saturday’s Football Bet of the Day see’s me begin in Switzerland where Young Boys will look for another three points at home. Then to Germany where I’m expecting Dortmund to continue their impressive goal scoring record.
Young Boys vs St Gallen
🇨🇭 Super League
⏰ Saturday 25th September, 17:00
Manchester United conquerors Young Boys host St Gallen at the Wankdorf Stadion. The hosts are currently in third, four points behind usual challengers Basel but do have a game in hand. The visitors on the other hand are lying in 8th position and just three points ahead of bottom placed side Lausanne Sport.
Young Boys come into this in superb form, winning 8 of their last nine games in all competitions. Whilst they made into the group stages of the Champions League, they stuttered at the beginning of their domestic campaign but they look as if they’re beginning to hit their stride. After a decent 1-1 draw away to Basel, they’ve won their next two league games, scoring 10 goals against both Zürich and Lausanne Sport. Young Boys are known for being strong operators at home and are unbeaten in their last 14 league outings, winning 11. Young Boys have already netted 15 goals in their six league games.
After winning their opening fixture away to bottom side Lausanne Sport, St Gallen are now on a run of six games without a win. That includes losing their last two games to both Servette and Basel, conceding seven goals in the process. St Gallen have been leaking far too many goals so far this season, with only Lausanne Sport (18) conceding more than the 16 goals they’ve already shipped.
Borussia Monchengladbach vs Borussia Dortmund
⏰ Saturday 25th September, 17:30
Saturday’s late kick off in the Bundesliga is the ‘Borussenderby’ at Borrusia-Park as Gladbach host Dortmund. Gladbach currently occupy the relegation playoff spot in 16th, whereas Dortmund currently sit in 3rd position.
It’s been a tricky start for new Gladbach manager Adi Hutter, who is looking to get Gladbach back into Europe after failing to do so last year. After what looked to be a promising start by drawing with Champions Bayern Munich, Gladbach have only went on to win one of their next four games. They lost three of those matches and a big problem for them is the amount of goals they are conceding. Gladbach have already conceded nine goals and are still yet to keep a clean sheet. They’ve already conceded two against Union Berlin and four against Bayer Leverkusen so a visit off Dortmund is the last thing they could be doing with.
Dortmund come into on a four match winning run in all competitions, scoring a remarkable 13 goals. Dortmund have been banging the goals in, scoring in all seven matches and finding the back of the net 23 times. In Dortmund’s last away outing, they managed to score four against European hopefuls Bayer Leverkusen showing how prolific they are. In five Bundesliga games this season, Erling Haaland has already scored seven goals and he will certainly fancy scoring against this leaky Gladbach defence.
Bet of the Day
Despite their European success so far this season ,Young Boys are playing catch up in their domestic league but look like they’re beginning to hit a bit of form. They should comfortably defeat a struggling St Gallen side at their home base. Dortmund have been scoring goals for fun so far this season and I can see them scoring at least a couple away to a Gladbach side who’ve had a poor start to the season.
- Young Boys to win & o1.5 goals
- Borussia Dortmund to score 2+
